The Validate Cash report may be run manually from the Month-End menu or may run during Night Utilities. Below is an example of the Validate Cash report. Note that cash journal one indicates a difference and cash journal two is okay.

A validate cash difference occurs when the Balance on File (which is a number in the database) becomes out of synch with the Proper Balance (a calculated number that should agree with a Status of Accounts). Many situations can cause this difference. Two examples are a workstation lockup or error that occurs while someone was making an entry to the cash account, or an out-of-balance cash entry that gets deleted by the Trial Balance.
